Lace Top  / Boyfriend Jeans / Ankle wrap heels

A pretty white blouse can go a long way.  When I found this scalloped lace top from Anthropologie, I knew it would be one of those pieces I would wear a ton, in a million different ways.  (Plus, I am a sucker for a peplum shape!)  In all honestly, there’s not a whole lot of opportunity for me to dress up.  So I am typically dressing down my “fancier” pieces for more of a laid back look.  I love the combo of destroyed denim paired with a clean white blouse.  Here are a few of my current favorites when it comes to white tops and destroyed denim:

Button Down Tunic Dress // Goddess Necklace & Festival Bangles by Musana / Diet – X Bag

I love it when I come across companies that are creating fashion for good.  Musana is one of those companies.  They create a line of beautiful jewelry, handmade by female artisans in Lugazi, Uganda.  Their model is to empower women to provide opportunities for their children, creating a generation of change.  For most of these women, this is the first time they’ve received a steady salary.  The financial stability of employment allows these artisans to provide their children with a stable home, nutritious food, medical care and an education.  And not only are these women given a job, they are also given the opportunity to take English, business, health and various other classes hosted at the Musana workshop throughout the week.  All this to say, Musana is really making a difference.  How amazing to know that something you purchase is impacting women and their families in such a profound way!

I am wearing the Goddess Necklace and Festival Bangles from their new Fall collection.  And today, Musana is generously giving away this same set to one lucky reader!  To enter , simply follow the prompts below!  A winner will be chosen on Friday the 23rd.  Good luck!

Emerson Fry

Emerson Fry Drop Shoulder Coat in Camel  //  Yoshi Tunic Dress  //  Black Mules  //  Tens Sunglasses

RAIN!  I’m thanking the heavens for this temperature drop and much needed rainfall!  I’ve never been more excited to put on a coat…..especially when it’s as beautiful as this one.  Emerson Fry has always made some favorite outerwear.  Their incredible coats are what first attracted me to the brand, but everything they create, from the perfect white linen tee to my dream mules, is perfectly minimal and timeless.  I’d honestly live in their Fall collection and not need a single other item of clothing.   It’s all interchangeable and can be worn a million different ways.  I’m wearing the Yoshi Tunic with heels for a more dressed up look…but I also love this tunic worn with skinny black pants and boots for a daytime look.  Give me all the black, white and camel! What’s not to love.

In other news, I baked my first apple pie yesterday (look!) and I’ve got to say, I think pie baking is my true calling ;)  Welcome Fall!

Top – Alli K Margot blouse / Ankle Jeans / sunglasses – SALT / Heels – Zara (similar)

5 out of 7 days of the week you’ll probably find me wearing black and white.  I’ve been trying to simplify my closet and de-clutter lately.  Every year I go through a phase where I feel like collectively as a family, we just have too much “stuff”.  And for me, that mostly means clothes ;)  But with two kiddos, toys are giving clothes a run for their money!  My rule is that if I haven’t worn something in my closet for over a year, it’s probably something I don’t need.  People usually do a Spring cleaning, but I guess my itch to purge is coming just a little late.  (closet sale coming soon btw!)  This top by Alli K is one of my favorite white blouses (in my ‘keep’ pile of course).  I don’t think you can ever outwear a good white blouse.  I love the length and the layered look of this piece, and it’s one of those great transitional pieces that I can dress up or down.
